About This Whiskey
The Haven is the first release of the Sailor’s Home’s unique single pot still Irish whiskey style. It is triple pot distilled, with a mash bill of malted and unmalted Irish barley and oats.
Sailor’s Home journeyed East and West to select the finest Spanish oloroso sherry and American bourbon casks to mature this special spirit to perfection, reflecting centuries of trade from Spain through Limerick and on to the New World. This is a most enjoyable premium Irish whiskey, better than any port in a storm.
